Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Neuroprognositication after cardiac arrest is challenging and requires an advanced, multimodal approach involving clinical neurologic examinations, brain imaging, electrical studies to assess brain activity and biomarkers to predict outcome. In this session, we use a case-based approach to discuss how the APRN can incorporate multiple sources of data to make an informed prognosis rather than relying on a single prediction modality.


  • Formulate a multi-modality approach to neuroprognositication following cardiac arrest.
  • Consider the impact of confounding factors in the timing of diagnostic studies for neuroprognositication.
  • Integrate current guidelines and research into the plan of care for patients with altered level of consciousness following cardiac arrest.
